Every edition of D&D designers seem to have a low regard for the quarterstaff. And now I see that they've given it a 1d4 damage die.
Leverage does most of the damage with a melee weapon and the humble quarterstaff is a good 5' to 6' long. It should be doing at least 1d8 in D&D Next. I want just one edition of D&D where I can play a lightly armoured quarterstaff fighter without being completely overshadowed by every other character.
Who's with me?
